killed this morning in explosions across iraq. that's exactly ten years after then president bush announced the u.s. invasion. most of today's attacks were car bombings around baghdad, including one near major government offices and foreign embassies. we're still getting information in on that in terms of casualties and injuries. elizabeth, you first, ten years later, where are we? well, it's a very difficult anniversary. no one remembers this fondly at all. the iraqis certainly don't remember this well. they're not marking this anniversary at all. i also think that the war changed fundamentally the way the united states thinks about war. look at how reluctant the president is right now to intervene in syria in a serious way. look at how reluctant the pentagon was to go to war to intervene in libya. look at how long the afghanistan wars lasted because of what happened in iraq. we're in a very sober place right now. also, we have to remember, nearly 5,000 american men and women killed in uniform killed as a result of this war. i should also -- i should also tell you, i am at this p
jerry saltz will analyze the bush brush. >>> we begin tonight with two men on opposite sides of gun safety reform. both claiming they represent the will of the people. new york city mayor michael bloomberg expressed confidence on "meet the press" that meaningful reform is on the horizon. >> i am cautiously optimistic. i think, when you have an issue where 90% of the public, 80% of nra members, even, say that they think we should have reasonable checks before people are allowed to buy guns, they all support the second amendment, as i do. but there are an awful lot of people that think that this is one of the great issues of our times. we have to stop -- >> yet nra executive vice president, wayne lapierre, is convinced that his organization is looking out for america's best interests, while bravely fighting off a challenge from the nanny state and its nanny mayor. >> he's going to find out this is a country of the people, by the people, and for the people. and he can't spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the american public. they don't want him in their restau
accepting of what the bush administration was claiming. so a good example would be, and not everybody is as discerning as you are, a good example, front page story in "the washington post," use that as an example, could be anybody else. today president bush said saddam hughes and is working with al qaeda. he is here, this is the story, and they quote an unnamed analyst because they can't speak openly, who would say we have no evidence to back this up. >> and i would seize on that. >> you would seize on it, put on a show if you have a show at the time. but the general thrust of the matter is you worked in congress, you know that a lot of congressmen and senators don't get past the headlines, we should take what bush says with more weight. the thrust of the story should have been president bush said something, contradicted by his own government and that should have been the lead, the fact he was saying something that wasn't proven. again and again and again. colin powell, that speech he gave february 5th, 2003, everyone remembers that, you know -- >> swayed a lot of people. >> swayed a
of george bush's announcement that america was at war with iraq. 55 people killed. more than 200 wounded. very hard to see that there is anything but chronic instability and continued hideous bloodshed there. what is your take? >> it's such a tragedy really the way things have unfolded in iraq. just looking at iraqi faces, seeing how pale they had become. we are hearing after one attack after another. people's voices actually began trembling. this is violence that, first of all, the iraqis never even imagined would end up being the outcome of america's war in iraq. so many of them hoped and dreamed they would have true freedom, democracy, that their horizons would be open. they have dealt with everything, all of the violence that wrecked this country over the past ten years. to be reminded of it again on the tenth anniversary shocked people and completely and totally devastated them, piers. >> it comes of course as the crisis in syria reaches what could be a tipping point where there are reports that president assad, although still unconfirmed and his people are saying, no, no, it was th
're talking obama versus bush. >> i'm talking about the real government, wall street, the banks, the corporations that made $2 trillion is what we spent on the iraq war. who made that money? soldiers in the field? no, i don't think so. this is always about the people who have the purse strings and the politicians who are bought off by them, and so if they come on now and tell me anything about this, you know, ahmadinejad is building a bomb, really? well, i'll believe it, you know, when he walks in a room with it and shows it to me. frankly that's really how much i would not trust anything being said by the military industrial complex of this great country. >> when you see what happens in just today in baghdad, 55 people killed if i think 17 different bombings, two other assassinations took place, 200-plus people wounded. that's a typical day in baghdad. >> that's right. >> over the last few years. >> that's right. >> i mean, this is not peace. >> right. >> this is not democracy. >> this is not freedom. >> right. >> what is it? >> what it is is -- first of all, we set this thing
george w. bush. that is the scary thing. we need to help israel establish a second most strategic alliance with egypt. obama does not have the ability. >> sean: jordan may not be far behind and syria is going the muslim brotherhood. >> he was most tossed out president in american-israel relations and before the election and same is true today. he didn't set the reset button on this trip. it was embarrassing and refused to go to the parliament to address the officials. it's self-styled and hand picked group of students and young people and he told them to ignore their elected representatives that somehow risk a verse and their parents who have some sort to overcome the legacy of mistrust. to tell holocaust descendants there is no healthy reason for skepticism is embarrassing and wrong. >> sean: ryan. >> let me give you an idea how little the current administration knows about the muslim brotherhood. they are celebrating the fact that the syrian rebels chose as the interim prime minister as an american, but this guy is tied to the u.s. muslim brotherhood. and u.s. ambassador for syr
that he was implicitly for citizenship. we have seen this with jeb bush who was for citizenship, in his book, don't know if he wrote it, seemed to not be for citizenship, now he is for citizenship. saw it with marco rubio, his speech at cpac, immigration reform, he doesn't even mention it. we are seeing there's a wing in the republican party when they hear citizenship, they here amnesty. and that's why they're in trouble with this. if you look at the polls, most republicans actually want a comprehensive immigration reform, something like 60%. you see this dance that these figures have to take around the issue. >> sam, it is not like rand paul didn't know. this speech was on his schedule awhile. he knew his day was coming and he was going to be talking about this in front of this audience. it seems easy to keep your story straight. >> you would think so if planning the speech. keep in mind where he came from not even a year or two years ago. in 2011 he cosponsored a bill that outlawed birth right citizenship. children wouldn't be granted citizenship. 2010, he ran for the senate, he had a
back to george h.w. bush and jim baker had a very tense relationship with former israeli prime minister shamir over settlements and loan guarantees, so the tension is real but not unprecedented, but you can manage it because of deep cooperation that the two countries have on a variety of issues to both. >> richard wolf, at the time there were people in israel saying what joe klein was saying. >> right. >> it was very controversial thing that bb netanyahu was doing, given that he worked literally in the same office with mitt romney in boston years ago, there was just plenty of suspicion around the whole thing. when president obama arrives there today, i assume there's going to be, there was absolutely none of that from president obama, seemed like all the burden was on netanyahu today to try to make up for what he had done during the campaign. >> right. let's be clear. this is more awkward situation for the israeli prime minister than it is for the american president. the israeli prime minister is the guy that screwed up. and by the way, there are other examples where actually the bush a
down the field. i'm not going make it. i'm a detroit lion. >> especially since we have reggie bush now. we're going to be in good shape. >> yes, that's what we always say. it is always going to be better. but i think seriously though, that the reason that in the past, with columbine, aurora, virginia tech, people forget about it after a few weeks and we move on to whatever else. people are not moving on. they are not moving on after newtown. and i think the reason is, and i can tell by the mail i get, there are too many parent who everyday drive their kids to school, and they open the door and this is what -- i mean, i've got this, more than a dozen times from mothers writing me and saying, i now when they open the door and i see them walk down the sidewalk into the school, i am sick that i have to feel like, is that last time i'm going to see my child. >> yeah. >> and because of that, because sense school went back into session after newtown, since january, millions of moms and dads have been dropping their kids off at school everyday and in the backs of their mind, they know where th
, that it was dysfunctional, a reprisal of liberals and what they have seen as excessive conservativism in the bush era and back and forth, and a dysfunctional agency. so there are other people who are less controversial and as i say would share mr. perez's views. and picking perez is sort of like what they did with chuck hagel. they could have found someone who shared chuck hagel's point ever view who wouldn't have been as controversial as mr. hagel. >> megyn: and the ig's report found mr. perez, that he misled investigators on the new black panther case that it was not intentional, that he should have done his homework, but not that he knowingly lied. that was the ig conclusion. however, they did back up the allegation that there is a racial hostility when it comes to enforces the civil rights laws equally where the defendant in the case is black and the victim in the case is white, that there's a racial hostility within the doj when it comes to those cases and that in fact that exists under mr. perez's civil rights division, as it did prior in the bush administration. is it not less controversial th
of president bush's own party who broke ranks. former national security adviser wrote an article call ed "don't attack saddam." there were some republican lawmakers as well. >> we have to remember we have been allies of saddam hussein. we say we know he has certain things, well, we do because we helped provide for them. i mean, we were his ally. >> it's good to -- today is to remember the warnings of u.n. weapons inspector hans blitz. it's a day to acknowledge the admonitions of leaders like general anthony zeni. eric shen who was forced into retirement when he disagreed with the bush cheny strategy. if we are truly remembering what it was like ten years ago today, we can't forget the millions of voices who opposed this war and attempts made to margin liz them. if you were a public figure, it was not a wise time to speak out against the administration. actress jeanne was called an iraqi sympathizer. >> saddam must love you and i'm sure -- >> don't even try and do that -- i'm not a saddam hussein apoll gist -- i don't think he said is that great news. >> michael moore was booed off the stage f
's experienced the region. fran is in the bush 43 administration. she currently sits on the exterm advisory committee. if we take senator finestein that there's a high probability that these weapons have been used, that it may well take some action. what does that action exactly look like. >> as you say, as chair of the senate intelligence committee, we have to assume she's been briefed and there's a basis for her statement. so we ought to take that pretty seriously. she also went onto say that the u.s. is able to verify that. but they'll be able to do that pretty short order. what that means, anderson, you do what you did in libya, which is only air strike using a coalition. owe're going to need some forces in the ground. there are known to be about four dozen chemical weapon sites. and that underscores the magnitude of this problem. the president presumably will want to put a coalition together. it will take a lot of people to be able to do this effectively. it will require air assets but it will also require ground forces. >> bob, obviously a lot of viewers when they hear the idea that t
, not once in his first term. just like every republican president since nixon. george h.w. bush didn't go. on his trip today, he planted a tree. he also signed a guest book. there were plenty of photo ops. this was the big one. see that big box thing that looks like it's on the back of a truck there. the president visiting the israeli air defense system that has a name that sounds like it comes out of a comic book. the iron dome. a big iron dome fly swatter paid for in part by the united states. and that's where our domestic politics intruded on today's presidential trip abroad. we are still trying to wrap our heads around the self-inflicted, unnecessary, designed to be dumb budget cuts. the sequester. and yes, those cuts include the funding for the iron dome. at his press conference today with his israely counterpart, the president oohed and awed. >> we're providing more security assistance and advanced technology to israel than ever before. and that includes more support for the missile defenses like iron dome. we will take steps to ensure that there is no interruption of funding for ir
. bush would not meet with arafat in the white house because he knew how that devastated friends and encouraged our enemies. you remember even in the gulags in the soviet union when reagan said evil empire about soviet union, they applauded. it gave them strength. it helped them push forward. this president doesn't get it. he was in the gulag and when they found out a president used those two words, it made incredible encouragement. >> sean: same speech about alexander s., and ambassador bolton, good to see you. king of jordan said we're making a big mistake by supporting the muslim brotherhood. before i ask you a question. i want to take it back to barack obama's apology tour and ask you if this was effective. let's roll that tape. >> america like every other nation has made mistakes and has it's flaws. in america there is a failure to appreciate europe's leading role in the world. instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times when america has shown arrogance and been dismissive even derisive. 9/11 was
this week. it was a parade of former bush administration officials to say not only did they personally do nothing wrong but the iraq war turned out great, the right decision to liberate those people and how dare we try to second-guess them all these years later. i did not expect such bald revisionist history. and it makes me very happy we have decided to re-air our documentary on what they did wrong on the selling of that war tomorrow night. even though it has been ten years since the war was sold to the american public, the folks who did the selling, you know what, they did it all on tape, and the tape still exists. and now the people involved in those decisions are coming forward to talk about it, to say it didn't happen at all the way it really did. hubris airs 9:00 p.m. eastern tomorrow night, followed directly after by talking hubris, hosted by chris hayes. if you saw it the first time, check it out again. certainly check out the chris hayes' special after. now it's time for the last word with lawrence o'donnell. have a great night. >>> history was made in israel today, by the presid
to the cairo speech, which was a speech to the arab and muslim world, the belief that bush had ruined america's reputation in the arab and muslim world. and that he needed to fix that. after all, we had 150,000 troops deployed in afghanistan and iraq. he was about to send more. we needed to improve our relations with the arabs and the muslims. and if we could achieve that, i think he felt that would redound to the benefit of israel because then the arabs would be prepared to engage with israel in response to our influence on them, and israel would then respond. that was essentially, as i understand, his theory of the case. and so essentially the message that he was playing to the arab world was i care about you. i understand your concerns. and-- . >> rose: the image of america is no longer the image i want you to have of america. >> correct. and by the way, i understand the palestinian issue is your hot-button issue and i'm going to solve it. he promised them that he would close cuan bega began-- guantanamo and solve the palestinian problem. but the message that he sent to israel at the same
travel for past administrations. i will tell through was one for bush 43 who said that he felt that this was kind of high. this amount of money for, you know, more than $500,000 in paris and about that in london. but also conceded there are a ton of factors that drive of the cost, empty rooms for security. hotel may require a compensation for displacing guests and we were -- i do have to tell you the vice president's office referred us to the state department here and they say these costs are nothing out of the ordinary. and they sort of spelled out all of these folks that need to go along with the vice president. they said the contract costs cover the entire range of support including accommodations for military, communications, secret service staff, et cetera. erin? >> all right, brianna, thank you very much. >>> i -- this astounds me. i'm sorry. my guests join me now and let me start with you, hill rich. it seems to me, sure, you need to have security. you need to have these things done right. no one is going to deny. that but 136 people, 800 room nights. a lot of those peop

, president george h.w. bush. then president bill clinton made up for that 12 years of neglect by visiting israel three times. and president george w. bush visited israel once in the last year of his presidency. so not every president visits israel, especially republican presidents, but modern presidential candidates do visit israel. barack obama actually first went to israel in 2006 when he was still an illinois senator. he went again in 2008 when he was running for president. you'll know chris christie is serious about running for president when he schedules a trip to israel. mitt romney went to israel last year in a desperate attempt to exploit a republican lie, that there was some kind of difference between president obama and it's really prime minister benjamin netanyahu about what the borders of israel should be. romney was aided and abetted in that lie by netanyahu, who is an old friend of romney's. they worked together 30 years ago at a boston consulting firm. as we reviewed last night, netanyahu left no room for doubt, he wanted mitt romney to be the next president of the united s

there is a affinity with this administration. in the bush years there was a lot of hard hitting stuff opposed to bush, especially after the iraq war went south. then they felt all guilty. they should have done x, y and z in the beginning. they were really tough. i think there really is a difference in how hard hitting the networks are depending on whether there is a conservative or a liberal in office. >> bill: i agree 100%. call them low information voters are becoming the majority in this country because there isn't information out there anymore. >> it's buried on the internet. >> bill: not on the internet. it's all skewed. you know, objective hard-hitting, uncovering things. if you don't know information, much rarer than it used to be. >> do you think the "times" or the post or the globe or 00 "l.a. times" 30 years ago was objective? what you had then was a liberal monopoly on the netted works, on the major papers, on the news magazines, on the colleges and universities. on hollywood. it was they had all called the commanding heights of the culture. the difference is is that now we have a few diss

and bush administrations and joined by matt center for american progress. seems like i just spoke to you last night. tell us what this speech means. does this mean the administration is willing to put forth a serious effort towards brokering peace in the middle east and specifically between israelis and palestinians or is this a tremendous speech that doesn't have the substance necessary to carry forth? >> i think it is a speech that underscores obama's speech in rhetoric. unfortunately i don't think it was tremendous in substance. the key aspects what's really necessary for a two state solution, halt to settlements, that was completely dropped from obama's prior substance filled speeches. unfortunately this plan or idea isn't going anywhere. >> why did he drop it? didn't want to insult the israelis to their face? didn't want to challenge them that toughly? >> i think the whole trip was not to make peace in the middle east to make peace with congress at home to pursue a domestic agenda to get work done here in the united states, a realization he needs congress behind him and congressman
and one of the biggest mistakes we made, goes back starting a little with the end of the bush administration, completely in the clinton administration, they bought into the phoniness of yasser arafat. the man was not a guy who was a terrorist who turned around. he was a terrorist who turned into a big thief. his wife is sitting in the south of france with hundreds of millions of dollars. that's the hundreds of millions through arafat, hillary clint--. >> major thief. the reason it's in the shape it's in, arafat stole the money going to the palestinian authority. >> sean: given by the united states. and to me when the president of the united states stands there with this guy's picture in back of him, it says to me, does this man have any sense of history? does he know what the heck he's dealing with? this is a man who's murdered at least 27 americans, those are the tip of the iceberg, that's i can count. one of the people who invented modern islamic extremist terrorism. he stole hundreds of millions if not billions from his people while he watched them staff starve. >> sean: an
